Some exclusive DLC for season pass owners will be available when the game launches, such as a weapon, the Calamity Blade, and 500 Helix Credits, which are the in-game currency.
Those who aren't willing to take the plunge on the season pass will still get a selection of new content as free updates. You'll also get the Roman Centurion and Horus packs this November, which contain new outfits, weapons, shields and mounts.
"The Curse of the Pharaoh's" story will focus on Egyptian mythology, tasking players with fighting undead pharaohs and exploring a new, mystical realm. With an entire country to explore, from deserts to lush oases, from the Mediterranean Sea to the tombs of Giza, players will fight against risky factions and wild beasts as they explore this enormous and unpredictable land. During their journey, players will encounter famed Egyptian beasts such as Anubis warriors, scorpions and more, as they investigate the cause of the curse that has brought the dead pharaohs back to life. These expansions will release in January and March 2018, respectively.

It seems like Ubisoft is flirting with the idea of having a persistent rotating set of new things to do, and new content added in to keep people playing like what we've seen done in recent games like Destiny.
Photo Mode: Players will be able to capture and share the beauty of the land by taking in-game pictures. Available at the launch of the game. Fifteen days after launch, you can try your luck in "The Trial of the Gods" event, which introduces timed boss battles against the might Egyptian deities.
Horde Mode: This is the same as the Horde Mode in Gears of War 4. Available in early 2018. As for free content, Ubisoft has plans to fill out Assassin's Creed Origins with regularly scheduled new missions and challenges, as well as a full Horde Mode. Unfortunately, you'll have to wait a bit for this too because it's coming in early 2018.
Today Ubisoft disclosed the downloadable content that it's planning to launch after Assassin's Creed Origins' release. The title is also going to get 4K support on Xbox One X and is touted as the "most attractive version of the game".
